John Gannon: 1910 Cherry Street Newsboy

Click on the image above to get a clearer view of text that accompanies the photo. I'm not sure if John was a newsboy or just one of the subjects of the Hine's series on working children at the turn of the last century. Living at 104 Cherry Street puts him just about on the KV "lung block" and near another subject of a 1913 Lewis Wickes Hine's photo, Jimmy Chinquanana
I'm not sure what was meant (from photo text) that a scholarship was recommended for John. For an orphan asylum?
